Pacay: Inga feuilleei, commonly known as pacay or ice-cream bean, is a tree that contains a podded fruit often cultivated for its edible white pulp surrounding large seeds. It is a legume tree native to Central and South America. All legumes have their seed encased in pods, a few of which are eaten as vegetables, green beans and snow peas, for example. A few lesser known legumes produce sweet pulpy fruits such as carob, tamarind, honey mesquite, and honey locust. Similarly, trees of genus Inga also produce sweet pods, a favorite snack of Central and South Americans.
